BALAS® is a steady state simulation package for chemical processes with emphasis on pulp and paper. The software has been developed at Technical Research Centre of Finland over the last 20 years and several Finnish paper mills, engineering companies and equipment manufacturers currently use it.
SimulationStore is a web portal that provides an easy access to VTT’s and its partners' Modelling and Simulation (M&S) offering.
- In these pages you can find information about the computational tools and related M&S services provided by VTT.
- By registering to the web pages you can download the installers of the computational tools and different plug-in products.
- In addition you can manage your own licenses related to these products.
- Some of the VTT’s computational tools include Simupedia features. It is also possible to publish interactive models to the SimulationStore using this functionality.
Probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) is a systematic and comprehensive methodology to assess the risks of complex systems. PRA is an essential part of the safety management in safety-critical industries, such as the nuclear industry, power production, process industry and transportation. PRA provides vital information to evaluate the importance of critical functions, identify weaknesses in technological systems, and optimise and balance design, operation and maintenance. In the nuclear domain, PRA is used to continuously find ways to improve safety, justify plant modifications, optimise annual maintenance revisions and fulfil regulations.
Metabolic modeling can be an important tool in the development of microbial strains capable of high efficiency production of chemicals or proteins. At VTT we are able to reconstruct gapless metabolic networks for several related species at once using the CoReCo algorithm. To ensure the high quality of the models we created an unique database containing only atom and electron balanced reactions.
KilnSimu is used in several industries. Though the technology of rotating drums has been available for over 100 years, it has not been replaced, but remains in active use in many of its traditional applications. The rotary drum provides an effi cient means for both heat and mass transfer in the processing of slurries and other condensed mixtures.
System dynamics is a methodology for understanding the behaviour of complex dynamic systems belonging to different domains. Simantics System Dynamics is a free, open source system dynamics modelling and simulation software. The software has an intuitive and easy to use Eclipse based graphical user interface which allows you to configure the whole model structure graphically. In addition to supporting all the common system dynamics modelling operations, the software includes many advanced features, such as structural reusable components, multidimensional variables, and sensitivity analysis.
Identification of novel enzymes with specific function by conducting homology based database searches.
Modelling and simulation is a present-day way to understand and improve processes to meet the increasing efficiency, safety and environmental demands. Simulation has become an important enabling technology in decision-making, engineering and operation, covering the whole life span of a production system.
The SULCA 4.2 software allows the user to perform LCAs including life-cycle inventory (LCI) and impact assessment (LCIA) calculations, as well as to present the calculation results in a comprehensible manner through its unique reports and charts. With this software, calculation of footprints e.g. carbon footprint is transparent and easy.
SULCA 4.2 is fast and easy to use, offering the following:
Process design and analysis is always based on the management of mass and energy balances. BALAS simulation tool is the most effective way to obtain information on the behaviour of an existing process and get a deeper understanding of the interactions in your process. Built-in link to MS Excel enables easy transfer and customised visualisation of simulation data.
